Last week we announced a matching gift challenge, our community responded.
With your support Joelle Logue is now a Deity and Demigod and just donated $5,000!
Cabal of the Crimson Flame
Art by Devan Meinhart
The Cabal of Crimson Flame are rebels and activists who believe Rookspire’s traditional institutions and old noble families are corrupt beyond redemption. They place their faith in the young, the unseen, and those who have no access to the infrastructure of the city.
Any gift pledged to the Cabal of the Crimson Flame funds our new Dr. Dennis Carroll Scholarship which supports any student training in theatre at the Hawaiʻi Conservatory of Performing Arts.
Dr. Carroll was a passionate local activist-artist of legendary impact, and a fearless iconoclastic firebrand, who founded Kumu Kahua theatre, the only company in the islands that produces plays by, for and about the people of Hawaiʻi.
Dr. Carroll mentored, inspired, and supported hundreds of local theatre practitioners…sometimes even saving their lives. He’d approve of the Cabal of the Crimson Flame’s efforts to disrupt the status quo, and create opportunities for those outsiders downtrodden by stagnant institutions.
We are proud to honor Dr. Carroll, and we are deeply grateful if you can help us ensure his legacy of advocating for students and local theatre endures for decades to come.
If you want to give, please take a look at the exciting rewards and their important impact on the right-hand side of this page. Your pledge delivers with some pretty cool real-life and in-game impacts.
